Individualized Program: The ABA Intervention program is uniquely created based on a comprehensive assessment of the individual (via an 8-hour assessment – one of the most comprehensive in Singapore). The program is tailored to fit unique learning styles, and continuously adapted as the person progresses to higher skill levels.
Language Priority: Acquiring language is one of our primary goals. We use several methods – including PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) for those who are non-vocal. We teach vocalisation at the same time to give the foundation for language. 100% of our children can express their wants and needs within one year.
Generalization: ABCs unique 5-level generalization program was developed by Co-Founder Brenda Terzich-Garland (Recreating Environment to Accelerate Learning, R.E.A.L, 1996) to enable skills learned in therapy to be used quickly in everyday life. This is a systematic 5-level program that ensures faster generalisation and learning.
Positive Programming: To address behavior problems that prevent children from learning skills, ABC uses Positive Programming Procedures.
BCBA Supervision on-site: ABC is the only center in Singapore with three Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA’s) on-site! BCBA’s are uniquely trained to design a child’s program accurately, and to supervise its implementation well.
1:1 Child/Therapist Ratio: ABC believes in ensuring a 1 to 1 ratio to give appropriate focus to each child specially at the start of a program. Only when a child can benefit from social interaction do we enhance the program to enable interaction in pairs or small groups.
Parent training: Parents play a central role in a child’s development. We aim for a consistent approach in both our center and at the child’s home. We include an 7-week parent/caregiver training for free as part of our package to maximize the effectivity of our program for your child.
Data-based: Data of the behaviors of each child should be the fundamental basis for their program. We meticulously collect data from each session and analyse these fully — daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly– to see the child’s rate of improvement and determine how to progress with the child’s program.
Our global success is driven by: our data-based approach, our emphasis on language, and our unique 5-level generalization (R.E.A.L.) program.
